I have a major problem with my Maxtor One Touch II. It has worked pretty good for over a year, and I have about 175 GB of irreplaceable data on it. When it is working fine, the blue led light flashes and it is recognized by the computer within a few seconds. However, when the drive now powers up, I only get a solid blue light and the computer does not recognize the device at all. I've looked through Maxtor's website and sent their support an e-mail but have yet to receive a response. Does anyone have any idea what may be going on? I can't send it back to Maxtor, because they do not service the drives, they only replace them, and I NEED to get all the data back. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
